Life was never the same after the old 460 was four-laned - Bluefield Daily Telegraph

Monday, August 22, 2016

In hindsight, I suppose it was a good idea to four-lane U.S. Route 460 all the way through Mercer County, and on to Roanoke, Tazewell County, and well, everywhere for that matter.But it sure was traumatic at the time.I lived on the old 460 near Oakvale growing up, and that two-lane highway was, of course, the lifeblood of the area as far as business was concerned.At one time, there were several stores on the road in that area, especially in Kellysville, which included long straight stretches of the road. Service stations, at least one with groceries and hardware, truck stops and other stores could be found.Of course, a few beer joints as well. In fact, several. At one time, I think there were five beer joints within a few miles of each other along that stretch of 460 from Kellysville to Fountain Park.The Bull’s Eye is the only one left, but that is another story.Obviously, when the new four-lane was constructed and traffic dropped off drastically, so did customers. A big chunk of the local economy fell by the wayside, as did pieces of history.As depressing as that was, though, the worst part of it was when p...
